Napa's Mandatory Water Savings Lifted
According to a recent article in the Napa Valley Register, the mandate issued by Gov. Jerry Brown last year requiring cities to reduce water usage has been lifted. The restrictions imposed in June 2015 required cities to lower water usage by at least 20% from 2013 usage rates or face stiff penalties. Not only did Napans meet this goal, they exceeded it by cutting consumption more than 25% and saving 1.2 billion gallons.
Although drought conditions continue to ease, certain water use rules passed by the State Water Board during the drought still remain in place such as restrictions on irrigation and overwatering. For complete details on these restrictions as well as additional information on the drought, please visit the City of Napa's Water Division webpage.
